Trust in Congress is at a historic low and it’s tempting to shrug that off as nothing unusual. But there’s a real opportunity for the charitable sector to better connect Congress with our citizens and influence them to do a better job. Using an in-depth systems analysis that demonstrates how we reached this point of public distrust, we will explore possibilities for remaking the incentive/reward structure that currently influences elected officials on Capitol Hill.
